If the driver at fault was under the influence of alcohol or drugs or had been inattentive to the road whilst using a mobile phone and the police were called to the scene of the incident those drivers can even face prosecution.
You can still claim compensation for injuries that occurred in accidents for which you were not to blame but did not involve another road user if the circumstances were avoidable (e.g. incident occurred because road markings were not visible or due to a pothole in the road).
